Written by José Andres for Eatocracy:
Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are,” might be Brillat-Savarin’s most famous quote, but something else he said that I find more powerful is: “The future of nations will depend on the manner in which they feed themselves.”
Today, on World Food Day, I think that statement has an even truer meaning and urges us to look around at our world and the importance of food. And why would words like this have such a profound impact on me, a chef? Chefs – all of us – feed the few, in our restaurants and at special events, but I believe we have the power and responsibility to help feed the many.
